@DrBermant bcoz of Gynecomastia. i hve to wear bra ?
This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Most men with gynecomastia do not like the contour. They come to me typically because they want a male look to their chest. Bras tend to shape what they support into a female shape as you can see in this collection of After Surgery Bras
Instead the typical gynecomastia patient who wants to stabilize their chest and give a man's contour has the option of Male Body Shaping Garments
. Of the many patterns available, most of my patients preferred for long term use this particular Second Stage Male Compression Vest
. I used this garment as a component of my patients' Scar Care
. However, I found it had wonderful abilities for shaping a male contour to chest tissues. Here is a before after photo and video analysis of Body Shaping Male Chest No Surgery
. There are many pages to this resource examining various body types how effective this garment controls the shape.
Some men prefer a female breast shape and contour. Some prefer bras to maintain a breast shape. I have also had requests to make breasts on a male shape Transgender Surgery
MTF or male to female. Here bras with inserts helped give the female chest shape to bring their contours into alignment with their body image. The external wear permits trial experiences before committing to a more permanent surgical solution. Search Amazon for Mastectomy Bras
There are bras with pockets to insert prosthetic breast enhancer shapes for a greater breast contour. Search Amazon for Breast Prosthetic
So, no, just because someone has gynecomastia, they do not need to wear a bra. It depends what they want to do with their contour and body shape.
Hope this helps,
